I have never been to Maggie May’s, I have always passed it on the bus, walked passed it but never thought lets go in and see what its like.

I recently spotted an Itison for here, where I could get 2 burgers and 2 soft drinks for £9 how good is that! So I thought this is an offer to good not to purchase and try.

Maggie May’s has had a revamp so this was like a promo to get people to come in and see whats its like now and to try the food.

On entering I had a look about, for me it was a typical bar with a little modern twist to it. The place looked very clean, and the layout looked nice and spacious.

The eating area is at the far right back of the premises, so we were shown to the tables.

The Food :

The offer was for a burger and a drink, but I thought lets try a starter and see what the other food is like here.

Maggese Lava Dipping Pot £4.00
Cheesy dipping pot served with Tortilla chips


I took a look at the menu and it was between two dishes, but this one won.

On arrival this looked a good portion size for a starter, and I just dug in.

This was very nice, the chips were nice and crispy and the sauce was very good. The sauce had a little kick to it, which was perfect and overall a really good starter.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4

Whiskey-a-go-go £N/A (Normally £8.50)
Beef burger topped with haggis & fried onions with a whiskey infused peppercorn sauce


There was a lot of nice sounding burgers on the menu, so it was a hard choice to make but I opted for this one.

Presentation wise it was just ok, the burger though did look good and smelled good.

The burger taste was nice but just so so for me, I was expecting something a little more from this due to the haggis and the sauce but it was ok.

Would I have it again? hmmm maybe if I was back in, but if I do return I would try some of the other burgers on the menu.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money : n/a
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 3.5

Overall :

Overall my first visit to Maggie Mays was an ok one, the inside I can’t really comment on the new look but it looked nice.

Food wise again it was ok, I really enjoyed my started and the burger was nice.

I would try another burger next time, and maybe another starter…then again I did enjoy the starter a lot so will see what happens on my next visit.
